Here’s a GREAT way to use up leftover mini-candy canes! Melt them in the oven to make Valentine Peppermint Hearts! This method works best with MINI candy canes!

Supplies:

Mini candy canes

Cookie sheet

Parchment paper

Heart cookie cutter

Directions: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Open the candy canes and place them like a heart on the cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for few minutes until they’ve melted into a thin sheet. Remove from oven (wearing mitts!) and quickly use the cookie cutter to cut into them – or use a knife to score them like I did. I just drew in the shape of a heart. Let cool, then snap away the excess from the cut-out design.

I think it would be fun to try this with other hard candies too, like Jolly Ranchers, hmmm…coming up soon!
